One certain sign of spring is the arrival of the packet of information to help you plan for the summer. This year all the paperwork for you camper will again be available in an online-only format. We will still be mailing the Parent Handbook and the official Nebagamon luggage tags, so please look for them in the mail. (If you want to go ahead and contact Travel One, Camp Nebagamon’s official travel agency, please call them at 800-245-1111.) This important mailing will leave camp’s winter office by the beginning of April. In the meantime, don’t hesitate to contact us at 208-345-5544 or firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions you may have about getting ready for a wonderful 2019 season!
